Highlights, Data Insights and Key Action Items

The SEC has finalized its long awaited climate-related disclosure rules. The final rules are consistent with what we believe institutional investors were looking for with respect to climate-related risk oversight and have many of the concessions public companies were seeking. Companies who have already aligned their sustainability reporting with the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures will benefit from consistency between those recommendations and the final rules. However, many public companies across the board will likely have to invest time and resources to prepare for the final rules. The final rules also provide for complex financial statement disclosure requirements, which financial reporting teams will have grapple with.
